At home care recipients spending double the time in hospital compared to aged care residents

Published

New research from the Registry of Senior Australians (ROSA) at SAHMRI, has revealed senior people receiving home care packages spend more than twice the amount of days in hospital, compared to those living in residential aged care.

The study, recently published in the Australian Health Review, involved collaboration between Flinders University, the University of South Australia and the Southern Adelaide Local Health Network, and was led by Dr Stephanie Harrison, examining emergency department (ED) presentations, unplanned hospitalisations, potentially preventable hospitalisations and time in hospital.
